Scientists at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica have successfully captured an image of our own Milky Way galaxy using neutrino particles.
Neutrinos, often referred to as "ghost particles," are elementary particles that interact very weakly with matter, making them extremely challenging to detect. However, the IceCube detector, equipped with over 5,000 light sensors, has made this extraordinary feat possible.
The research team analyzed the trajectory of more than 60,000 neutrinos, constructing a three-dimensional map of their movements and correlating it with potential sources within the galaxy.
This image of the Milky Way, obtained through neutrino imaging, provides a unique perspective on our galactic home.
